LA Dodgers win surreal World Series in 2020 #COVID19

Posted By on October 28, 2020

As one newspaper reported, it has been “the weird­est year in base­ball his­tory.” The World Series ended Tues­day night with the Los Angeles Dodgers winning the 2020 MLB season’s in game 6 of the World Series. The Tampa Bay Rays were out played with strong pitching by the Dodgers, and although I had totally checked out of the MLB season early on due to polarization the sport over our flag, anthem and protest movement in support of a Marxist-based political organization, I have paid attention to the scores in the playoffs and World Series (just refused to watch – my wimpy protest regarding injecting politics in sports).

After the 3-1 win, the Dodgers gath­ered on the field for the tro­phy pre­sen­ta­tion, but just when I thought the “unattended games” in a neutral field couldn’t get any weirder, we find out that the Dodgers team—third base­man Justin Turner left the game af­ter the sev­enth in­ning be­cause of a positive coro­n­avirus test. No ex­pla­na­tion for his de­par­ure had been announced while the game was in progress, but yet he still ended up back on the field for the celebration (supposed to have been in isolation).

How fitting to end the 2020 MLB season on a COVID19 note, but my congratulations to the Los Angeles Dodgers for making it to the end of the season … although as a fan, it was hardly a successful or enjoyable one. Let’s hope for a bit more sanity next year.
